- Published to accompany an exhibition at Monogramma Arte Contemporanea in Rome from May 28th to June 28th 2021 - Includes artworks by 12 notable Italian artists working in the electrical atmosphere of creativity and innovation that centered on the Piazza del Popolo in 1960s Rome The Scuola di Piazza del Popolo, a loosely affiliated group of Italian artists, were part of the pioneering artistic scene that centered on the area around Rome's iconic Piazza del Popolo in the mid-1960s. These artists, working in what is contentiously called an Italian Pop style, often used the visual vocabulary of Pop Art but forged a path that they considered both innovative and experimental. This catalog for a show in Rome brings together works from the 1960s created by 12 Piazza del Popolo artists: Franco Angeli, Mario Ceroli, Tano Festa, Giosetta Fioroni, Jannis Kounellis, Sergio Lombardo, Francesco Lo Savio, Renato Mambor, Pino Pascali, Mimmo Rotella, Mario Schifano and Cesare Tacchi. The catalog features personal recollections of the period by Professor Emmanuele Emanuele, texts by Giovanno Morabio and Giancarlo Carpi, an essay by the curator of the show, Gabriele Simongini, excerpts from writings by a number of the featured artists, biographies, and archival photographs. Text in English and Italian.
